WSSF Slideshow

April 22nd, 2013

If you have 9 min to spare and want to see some ski and snowboard photography now when the winter is coming to an end please check out the link.
It’s my slideshow from the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown in Whistler that went down last week.
It was an amazing show and it’s hard to describe how emotional and powerful it was to see my work displayed on huge screens with an incredible sound system and the crowd cheering loud.
Thanks to all the riders that made this possible.

Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown

April 17th, 2013

I just got to Whistler where I will be spending the next few days.
I’m here for the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown that will go off tomorrow night.
I’m really stoked to be in the final with 4 other great photographers. It’s Chris Burkard, Andy Wright, Bryan Ralph and Darcy Bacha.
We are all presenting a 9 minute slideshow of our work mixed with music. It’s going to be really cool to see the other guys slideshows and we’ll have to see who takes home to first spot.
What ever the end result is I’m super happy to have come this far.

Here are some shots that made the cut.

January 8th, 2013

If you are flying first class with British Airways make sure to get a copy of First Life Magazine.
I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to grab one my self any time soon but if I get the chance I’ll run in to the first class cabin and pick one up before they throw me back down to economy.
The shot is of Sverre Liliequist in Engelberg.

Pow

November 30th, 2012

I’m pretty tired after a full day of riding. It was -15, sun and epic pow on Titlis.
I did a few shots of Piers Solomon and Linus Archibald but other then that just riding all day.
Here are two shots to show the snow quality today.

The Ski Journal

November 14th, 2012

I just got the new issue of The Ski Journal with quite a few images of mine.
There is a nice story from my trip to Georgia last winter written by Johan Jonsson. It ended up being a pretty big story and I really like Johan’s writing.
I also got my own portfolio that I’m super happy about.
If you have the chance go and pick up a copy and enjoy.
Here is a short preview.

Nicaragua

October 27th, 2012

I have been in Nicaragua for a few days with a group of good friends. The main goal is to surf and relax before the winter season kicks in. My surf skills are more or less non existing but it’s really fun and hard for the body at the same time.
Here are a few shots so far. I leave the quadruple overhead action shots in epic light with whales breaching in the background to the surf magazines.

Hot

August 15th, 2012

It’s very nice weather at the moment in Engelberg. I just came back from shooting some biking and it’s almost too hot to do it now but I should not complain.

I went in the valley with the the Windlin brothers, Lars and Kevin and we found some really nice locations for shooting.
We have an upcoming project that will be epic if it all works out, we will see.

I have also been biking a lot without the camera together with my wingman Johan. Unfortunately he crashed and is going in to surgery tomorrow for his collarbone.
I hope for a speedy recovery so we can go ride soon again.

Patagonia sent me a nice reminder of winter when I got this big poster in the mail.

Back in Engelberg

July 30th, 2012

I’m back in Switzerland again after a few weeks in Sweden. The plan now is to get some work done with biking and hiking around Switzerland.
I just got the Patagonia winter catalog in the mail with two of my images. They are both from last winter in Engelberg when I was shooting with their Ambassador Stephan Drake and the DPS guys Piers Solomon and Matteo Calcamuggi.
Yesterday I went up to the Windlin brothers new playground. They are turning an old barn in to a sweet hangout with mini ramp, foam pit, climbing wall and other fun stuff. It’s not quite ready yet but we were trying out how soft the foam pit is. Lars was also getting some new stickers on his new truck.
Here are a few shots from their place, hiking in Norway and the catalog stuff.

Vacation

July 4th, 2012

Not much going on here on the blog…I’m having a few weeks of vacation in Sweden but I will go back to Engelberg in mid July.
I’ll start posting some bike, hike or climbing stuff then.
I have been shooting hiking a few days in Norway and around here on the west coast of Sweden but mostly I’m just enjoying summer and trying to spend as much time as possible with my family and friends that I usually don’t see during the rest of the year.
Here is an iphone shot from my evening swim with my mother and brother 20 minutes ago. My mom lives right by the sea so this is also a good reasons to go home, Swedish summer at it’s best!
